School Characteristics School Characteristics
School Management
(1)School's Major Concerns : “Success is the mother of success” is one of the beliefs that the school holds. The development of children can be much better if it is under appreciation, encouragement, and respect. Success is not only measured by academic performance but also through their multiple potentialities so as to enhance their self-esteem that leads to further success.
(2) School Management Organisation: : We practise school-based management involving the school supervisor, members of school board, principal, parents, alumni and teachers. The efficiency of school management as well as leadership was acknowledged in the recent External School Review. Management work is led by the principal, vice principals and assistant principals organizing the work of several administrative clusters concerning Student Development, Teaching and Learning, Extra-curricular Activities, Life-wide Planning, Value Education, Administration and Promotion.
(3) Incorporated Management Committee / School Management Committee / Management Committee: : Founded in July, 2009
(4) School Green Policy: : Our Civil Education team is responsible for conveying messages about protecting our environment. During assembly lessons, we invite different environmental NGOs to give talks to our students and workshops are arranged as extra curricular activities. Students will then obtain knowledge about the most recent environmental protection issues. Also, we organise voluntary services for students to experience and make contributions to the society about related topics. Knowledge concerning environmental protection is included in the syllabuses of some academic subjects like Integrated Science and Liberal Studies.
Learning and Teaching Plan
(1) Whole-school Language Policy: : In order to enhance the English proficiency of our students, we hire a full-time NET. Besides, there are teaching assistants helping students with listening and speaking skills. We organize reading scheme and writing workshop to promote the reading and writing skills of students. What is more, some students are recommended to sit for international English assessments such as Cambridge English, TOEIC and IELTS.
In spite of adopting Chinese as our teaching medium, we arrange English language extension activities in 8 subjects.
(2) Learning and Teaching Strategies: : We emphasize the enhancement of language proficiency and mastery of IT. Another focus of the school is to cultivate students to abide the rules and take up responsibilities. Creativity is certainly encouraged in the campus. Teachers discipline students with love and are under the mission of differentiating the curriculum in order to suit students’ needs as well as cater for learning diversity. For some subjects, textbooks are tailor-made by teachers so as to integrate appropriate materials for our students. We place emphasis on the learning process rather than results. This aims at helping students to learn, make progress, develop good values and attitudes and ultimately pursue excellence.
In different levels, we set different attainment standards. For those who fail to meet the standards, tutorials are provided. Moreover, S.1 and S.2 students can stay after school to finish their work under the supervision of teachers or hired tutors.
Voluntary based after school tutorial are also offered to students of other levels. Higher achievers are granted other courses as well.
(3) School-based Curriculum: : 1. Electives: 2X. 30 electives combinations from 11 subjects in 5 classes are provided for students to choose according to their ability and interest in every senior secondary level.
2. Curriculum highlights: Life education as well as Buddhism and Value Education are implemented in S.1 to S.3 to nurture students with good lifestyles and attitudes. Apart from subjects related to public examinations, students can also develop themselves via their individual learning experience to enrich their growth. In senior forms, School-based Applied Learning includes first-aid, make-up, photography, food and beverage catering is offered.
Students need to participate in different learning activities such as religions, performing arts, study tour etc to gain experience outside the classroom.
(4) Development of the Four Key Tasks: : In order to improve students' reading ability, strengthen their reading and self-learning habits, the school has integrated reading as one of the main elements into the curriculum of all subjects. Through the setting of the theme-based reading activities, class teachers make good use of the self-regulated learning period to lead and encourage students to read. At the same time, different activities such as book exhibitions, book sharing and writers talk are held every year to promote the reading culture of the whole school.
A projector, screen, computer linked with wireless network and a visualizer are installed in each classroom to provide an interactive learning atmosphere through the use of IT.
Project based learning elements are integrated in each subject so as to enhance the spirit of teamwork and collaboration of students.
The Civic Education Team, Ethics and Religious Team and the Discipline and Counseling Team arrange several kinds of voluntary work, leadership training, seminars and visits for students. At the same time, posts and duties are created in each class, different subjects and in school to cultivate the sense of responsibility towards the country, society, family and individual with the hope of making them contributive citizens in the world of tomorrow.
(5) Life Planning Education: : During the Career Week, old students working in different sectors are invited to share their work life with students. Regular visits to universities and different entrepreneurs are provided to widen the scope of students. Summer Internship schemes have been organized with commercial firms for our students as well. For senior form students, time slots of receiving individual counseling service concerning career planning are allocated.
Student Support
(1) Whole School Approach to Catering for Learner Diversity: : Whole-school approach is adopted in catering for students’ diverse learning needs. No one will be left out in our school. There are two class teachers in each class to work with a discipline and counseling teacher to take care of the students. We hire 2 full-time social workers and speech therapist. Furthermore, 10 qualified and trained assistants regarding discipline and counseling, teaching and activity to assist our students in learning.
In order to better cater for our students, we practice medium class teaching and co-teaching. Officers and assistants holding the social worker certificates are employed to organize and assist SEN students. For the other teachers, we believe integration is the best way to nurture our students to learn under mutual aid and mutual love.
We are one of the first patch of schools which were chosen to join the Project WeCan. Together with application from different organizations, additional subsidy is granted and is spent on providing multiple learning opportunities, experiences of success, extra tutorial classes and study tours for students of different abilities.
(2) Whole School Approach to Integrated Education: : Our school adopts a "whole school approach" model to promote integrated education and is committed to building a culture of inclusiveness. Through the establishment of a student support team, including the Vice Principal, the SENCO, teachers from core subjects departments, social workers, teaching assistants, and the school-based Educational psychologists, to provide comprehensive support for students with special learning needs. The team will organize the relevant students' information and communicate with teachers and discuss follow-up measures. Regular special events will be held to enhance teachers' understanding of integrated education. Teachers will also be arranged to participate in related training courses organized by EDB to enhance their professional knowledge. The school has a flexible use of the Learning Support Grant to support the development of students in all aspects. In terms of learning support, we cater for the diversity of students' learning through school-based curriculum design, diversified teaching strategies and various after-school learning support measures. In terms of student growth, different experience activities and career planning projects are held to develop students' multiple intelligences and create opportunities for them to succeed. At the same time, outsourcing expert services provide students with more professional training. The school attaches great importance to the cooperation between parents and school. In addition to establishing a constant communication mechanism, the team also actively meets parents at Parent Days to review the situation of students and to set study plans for individual students. All these measures let parents adapt a more effective way to take care of and teach their children.
(4) Measures to provide adaptation for Learning and Assessment: : In each lesson, teaching goals are stated clearly. Questioning is conducted in the end of each lesson to ensure consolidation, efficiency and effectiveness to attain the set standard. There are one examination and one graduation examination for F.6 students and two assessments together with a summative assessment for F.1 to F.5 students. In the school reports, examination results, daily performance, conduct, and achievements like services and competition results are listed. For students who cannot meet the academic requirements, they have to attend counseling activities during summer holidays to gain improvements. If they still cannot make it, then they need to repeat in the original levels.
Home-school Co-operation and School Ethos
(1) Home-School Co-operation: : Two Parents’ Days for whole school and Parents days for Specific levels are held every year. Communication with parents is done through the student handbook, telephone, school newsletter, emails and parent letters. Parents are welcome to take part in social gatherings and talks arranged by the PTA to cultivate a good relationship and enhance the acknowledgement of school policies and visions.
(2) School Ethos: : We place a strong emphasis on the integrity of students. Teachers are strict but compassionate. We teach students with patience. Discipline camps are held and PATH periods are integrated into our time-table. We have the Resurrection Scheme to guide students to self-correction. There are other guidance schemes to cater for different students. We have been invited by the Quality Assurance Team to conduct sharing sessions with all the secondary and primary schools.
In the latest report of External School Review, we received high appreciation. For details, please refer to the report.
